Emissions Trading Scheme and Register

The New Zealand Government has made a long-term commitment to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. Our primary method for doing this is the Emissions Trading Scheme. The EPA administers the scheme and operates the Emission Unit Register, where transactions take place.​​

About the ETS

The Emissions Trading Scheme is New Zealand's primary response to global climate change. It puts a price on greenhouse gases to provide an incentive to reduce emissions, invest in energy efficiency, and plant trees.
